The 8 Most Frustrating Tracks In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Acknowledging the tracks we love to hate in Mario Kart.

The 8 Most Frustrating Tracks In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game, and one that expands upon the fantastic gameplay of Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U. However, as every kart racer knows, there are some tracks that are a pain to play. Here are the 8 most frustrating tracks in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

1. Grumble Volcano

I absolutely dread racing on Grumble Volcano. The track starts to fall apart after the first lap, fireballs start raining down, and the track seems to hate life itself. Grumble Volcano is definitely one of the most difficult tracks to race, and I’ve never heard anyone say that it is one of their personal favorites.

2. Bowser’s Castle

It is no secret Bowser and Mario have been at odds for a long time, so it only makes sense that Bowser is out for blood and bruises when kart racing in his castle. Filled with traps and curving roads, Bowser’s Castle is sure to make anyone cringe who is kart racing here.

3. Bone Dry Dunes

Desert track designs have never been my favorite, which doesn’t help Bone Dry Dunes avoid making this list. Although it isn’t one of the most difficult tracks, it has its fair share of challenges that can easily send someone in first place to the back of the pack. Due to those problematic challenges and the track design, Bone Dry Dunes can make any kart racer frustrated, even on a good day.

4. Wario Stadium

A tight track that encourages rough dog fights with other players, Wario Stadium can create some pretty crazy races. Not only is Wario Stadium a delicate track to drive, but it also contains one of the hardest turns to make in all of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I’ve found myself getting better at racing in Wario Stadium, but it is definitely a hard track with a steep learning curve.

5. Sherbert Land

Sherbert Land is a complex track with several different paths. Not knowing the best path and always being confused with the path chosen makes Sherbert Land a frustrating track for me personally. It is also a track that seems to hit players hard with unfortunate items more so than other tracks. With these two factors combined, it definitely becomes one of the most frustrating tracks for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

6. Neo Bowser City

Filled with tight turns and close calls, Neo Bowser City is a tricky track to navigate. Drifting is a requirement to succeed when racing here, and many turns aren’t afraid to punish you if a drift isn’t performed perfectly. The design of the track is gorgeous, but the track itself can be enough to frustrate any beginners of Mario Kart.

7. Cheese Land

Perhaps the most annoying obstacle to ever exist in Mario Kart is in Cheese Land, and it is the craters in the middle of the road throughout the whole track. Although the craters can be used to jump and gain a little boost, they often times are hard to execute precisely. While the concept of the track is cool, it is hard to love this track with its cheesy curves and crazy craters.

8. Rainbow Road

Who doesn’t know of the horror that is known as Rainbow Road? Mario Kart 8 introduced a new space station version of the popular hardcore track. Although there are 3 versions of Rainbow Road on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I believe this version is the hardest one in the game due to how demanding some of the turns can be. Winding roads with sharp turns and no borders makes this a challenging course for newbies and veterans playing Mario Kart.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
